This is part 3 of my series “Creating the next generation of entrepreneurs.” You can read part 1 and part 2 here as well. First let me say thank you for all the feedback on my earlier posts. I don’t pretend to know everything but I have been blessed with some great experiences and I feel compelled to share what I have learned from them with the hope that they help you in some way or at least get you thinking about these topics.

Study: TV may perpetuate race bias
Most people regard watching television as a passive activity. You sit, you watch. Occasionally, you change the channel. But a new study reveals that even this passive diversion may lead to actively damaging effects, particularly when it comes to issues of race. In a series of intricately designed experiments, psychologists at Tufts University demonstrate that subtle racial biases are often expressed by characters on popular television shows, and that viewers not only pick up these attitudes but allow them to shape their own outlooks on race. The most insidious part of this cultural traffic, the researchers found, is that the transmission of race bias appears to occur subconsciously, unbeknownst to the viewer. (Continue Reading…)
